Bought a van, but plans have changed and now selling said van (or open to trade) so we can buy a class B RV van to tote the cats around in.https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1-1JREQhyO6LYdp_DILW09WrA7s-yNhOg?usp=sharing
Here's the deets:
1982 Chevy G20 Conversion Van
Not entirely sure of the engine, guy I bought it from states it's the 350 crate 5.7 L with a turbo transmission, which would mean that both are not original stock, haven't been able to confirm numbers on tranny or engine to support this
60K on odometer
New tires all around with alignment
New brakes all around including pads, drums, rotors, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, repack wheel bearings
New butterfly valve seals
New plug and wires, new HEI cap and rotor
New catalytic converter
A/C (needs to be recharged)
Original two knob stereo
Heavy Duty rear springs
Tinted windows and curtains
Rear two bench seats, converts into bed
Rear bucket swivel Auxiliary seat
Blue Marble Shag Carpet
Oil pan gasket is leaking, may be additional oil leaks, haven't investigated further with mechanic
Front seats needs replaced as the conversion shop used some pretty thin fabric
Heater core may need to be replaced
Some cold start issues, may need a choke adjustment, kicks off fine after 30 sec - 1 min, no problems once warmed up
What a great van to drive. Drove it through the Santa Cruz mountains yesterday and hate to see her go, really a very enjoyable drive. 13 mpg doing highway speeds of 65+. We love the van, but have decided to go the direction of a class B van. Located in San Francisco where you can ask for a bit more sometimes, but don't want to be out of line or unrealistic.
Anyone have any thoughts?
ps--found this van on this forum after watching the documentary vanners. Love this van! Just not the right fit for our future plans at this time, looking forward to a future piece of history more fitting for our place in time in the future.
